I have windows 7. I have two old Paragon games Space 1889 and Twilight 2000. How do I play them or get them to work in windows 7? I have just obtained the three Mega Traveller games and want to play them also.

With regards to Mega Traveller, I can say from personal experience that they work just fine with Dosbox. If the other two games are from the same era, they probably will work as well.

For old DOS games, you use a program called DosBox, which emulates a DOS-driven machine. Install the program, mount a directory where you'll keep your old games as drive C: (never mount your HD directly), mount the game's install disc as D:, install and play.
